75th Primetime Emmys: No Spoilers Here, But Succession Leads Nominations (CORRECTED)

Zinger Key Points
  • Succession wins most nominations for a drama series while Ted Lasso leads the comedies
  • Big night for the media companies to showcase their best productions

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to correct the stock ticker for AMC Networks: AMCX, not AMC.

TV-land finally gets its showcase event Monday night after a four-month postponement. It’s the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards, where the television networks battle it out for accolades and, more importantly, recommendations for binge viewing in the year to come.

At the head of the nominations list, with 14, is HBO’s Succession, which is nominated for Outstanding Drama Series, while stars Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin and Jeremy Strong compete for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series and Sarah Snook is nominated for Outstanding Actress.

Media Machinations

The series charts the fading health of the owner of a media conglomerate and the machinations of his children as they vie for dominance. HBO owner Warner Bros Discovery WBD says: “It’s all in the family in this provocative, funny series about a highly dysfunctional dynasty.”

It’s rather evocative of the Murdoch family, which runs News Corp NWS, or the dysfunction that currently surrounds Walt Disney Company DIS with boardroom battles and shareholder activism.

Disney is represented at this year’s awards by nominations for The Bear and Only Murders in the Building among others.

Big Night For The Networks

Apple AAPL TV airs the most nominated comedy Ted Lasso, about a college football coach who unexpectedly finds success training an English soccer team. Jason Sudeikis, co-creator and the eponymous lead, is up for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series.

Also in the Drama category, there were nominations for AMC Networks AMCX Better Call Saul, the popular Breaking Bad spin off and Netflix‘s NFLX The Crown, both of which have already won multiple awards, and Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon, run by HBO, which has its first nomination for Monday tonight’s gongs.

In the Limited Series or TV Movie category, Daisy Jones And The Six, run by Amazon AMZN Prime, tells the story, in rockumentary style, of the rise to stardom of the titular band and its break-up at the height of success.

Hollywood Strikes Delays Ceremony

The 75th Awards show nominations were first published way back in July, with the ceremony slated for Sept. 18, but the ensuing actors and writers strikes in Hollywood saw the event postponed for four months.

Thus, the winners had already been decided by the end of August, and various leaks since then and tonight’s ceremony mean some of the results are known.

But, if you haven’t already heard, we won’t reveal them here.
